ATLANTA, Oct. 25 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- International BioChemical Industries, Inc. announced the signing of a distribution agreement with Arrow Engineering Inc. under its revised distribution model. Under the new format of the distribution model, there are performance criteria that are required to be met.

Arrow will provide IBCI status reports and plans on a regular basis, including projected volumes by quarter as part of the new distribution program.

Arrow Engineering's knowledge of the industry and relationship with the top carpet manufacturers is the reason we entered into this agreement. We have spent the last few months developing our new program and the company is now moving forward with this type of distribution agreement which will be typical with all distributor contracts."
